Sweet Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
This is really easy with a large can of sweet potatoes. Normally, I would say those are gross and I am a BIG FAN of baked sweet potatoes, but if it's holiday time, that would be a time saver. Also, I omitted the flour, and reduced butter to a simple pat and it was still great. Left the topping off my serving and put the yummy stuff on the rest of the family's. (I'm watching my calorie intake. Sweet potato and egg is not sinful at all and it was still YUMMY.) Cheap, simple, and delicious!

Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
I called my mother-in-law to get this recipe this evening because it's a favorite on that side of the family. I have to take a potato to a potluck and this is perfect. We use O'Brien potatoes and I omit the onion. Also, one year there was nothing for the topping but Cinnamon Toast Crunch, so we used that and it was actually tasty! We have made it that way ever since! ;-) Enjoy!

Quick and Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
My husband does not like tuna OR peas, so whenever he goes out of town on business, I make something using both, for my kids and I. I was very pleased with this recipe! Pretty simple to put together and I LOVED the fact that it was done quickly and with a stockpot instead of a casserole dish in the oven. (Living in Oklahoma, I look for dishes I can make on the stovetop in the summertime, instead of using the oven.) Because I wanted it to be kid-friendly, I only used 2 T. of finely chopped onion. (I threw the rest of the onion I chopped up in the freezer for another day.) I only used 5 slices of American, but then grated in the better half of a block of cheddar. I added one can of milk. I also used 2 C. mixed vegetables and could have used more! I topped it (right in the pot) with a mixture of a tad melted margarine and half a sleeve of crushed Ritz crackers. My 3 year old daughter unfortunately, is being difficult and won't taste it, but we'll see if I can get her to later tonight. My 10 month old son loved it! (I have been introducing more mashed table foods recently.) I did add generous pepper and a bit of salt to my own dish, but liked this so much I may even try and get the husband to eat it! I'm now trying to decide what perfect dessert I want to make to follow it. I'm thinking Coconut Custard Pie or Brownies!

Grandma's Sweet Slaw

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
I like Kentucky Fried Chicken's sweet cole slaw, so this is what I was looking for. I browsed a similar recipe on this site and it had lots of ingredients. It tempted me to add salt and pepper, plus a splash of vinegar and a splash of milk. In retrospect, I wish I'd just kept it simple and left it without the extra liquid. I will keep the salt and pepper though for next time. It did seem too sugary at first, but let it sit for a while, then test it. It did create a bit of "juice" after sitting. Fine with me though; just like the restaurant's. Sometime when I'm feeling healthy, I will try it with Splenda. I think it would be very good. I used a bag of preshredded slaw mix and can't wait to use this again for a SUPER QUICK, CHEAP and HEALTHY side this summer, no oven needed. I think we'll try it on top of pork burgers - YUM! Thanks!

Spiced Tea Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
This is similar to a drink my mother used to enjoy. I remember her sipping it in the evenings. She kept it in a little tin on the kitchen counter. I made it a few years ago, but unfortunately lost the recipe. Our version was a little different. I mixed one container of lemon sweetened instant tea with one container of orange breakfast drink (Tang). I used generic for both. I added 1 teaspoon of allspice and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. I also added 2 little tubs of sugar free lemonade (Crystal Light). I even added 1/3 cup of Splenda. I mixed it all in a gallon freezer bag, then used a funnel to pour it back into the plastic tea and orange drink containers. (Careful, it creates a lot of powder in the air!) I then heated 2 cups of water for a few minutes in the microwave and added 2 tablespoons of the mix. It was a bit bland, so I tried 3 tablespoons and it tasted just about right. With some experimentation, this is a delicious drink. I prefer the half tea/half Tang version, with a little spice added in. See what you like. It's perfect as a small Christmas gift for coworkers, neighbors, etc. Great with a tin of Christmas treats. Enjoy!

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
I have made several popular recipes on this site and never seem to have the luck that others do. I was starting to think I was a cursed cook! I wanted to make gingerbread cookies with my daughter and I'm glad I tried this recipe. All I had was blackstrap molasses, so I used it, and my 3 year old daughter did NOT want to lick the beater. Neither did my husband. I thought I had wasted my time and made yucky cookie dough noone would eat. I put off making the cookies until a day or so later. (The dough had hardened considerably under Saran Wrap, but still worked fine.) My husband just doesn't care for gingerbread and never ate them, but my daughter LOVED them! I thought she would remark that they were too spicy; instead she asked for them over and over again for several days. Next time, I will double the batch. I even printed up the recipe and included it in my Christmas cards (something I like to do.) Thanks!!
